Te Wā Pūrākau
o Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa – Tio Tiamu by Kurahau

Hei whakatairanga i Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori ka tukuna e Te Wā Pūrākau o Te Tira Pūoro o Aotearoa a Tio Tiamu

He tipua tāroaroa he tipua hūmārie atamai hoki. Heoi anō ka tipu haere ia ka kino kē ake te haunga o ōna waewae. E pirangi ana a Tio Tiamu ki te āwhina i te iwi ā kia tau hoki tāna noho ki waenga i tōna hapori engari ka whakatoihia ia. Tāria te wā ka tautokona ia e rātou? I tuhia e Kurahau mō te manaakitanga me te tautoko a tētehi ki tētehi. Ka pānuitia e Maaka Pohatu ki te reo Māori. Ko ngā puoro tautoko nā Tane Upjohn-Beatson.

To celebrate Māori Language Week NZSO Storytime presents The Smelly Giant.

Toe Jam’s feet smell! He is a gentle and clever giant but the bigger he grows the worse the smell gets. Toe Jam just wants to help others and to be part of his village but everyone teases him. Will they come to accept Toe Jam for who he is? Kurahau writes a story of kindness and acceptance and is beautifully read in Te Reo Māori by Maaka Pohatu with music from Tane Upjohn-Beatson.
